Yes, your unit should support the latest custom firmware, which includes a custom kernel to fix issues such as USB mount not working. Use the Universal Patcher found here: https://boards.dingoonity.org/ingenic-jz4760-devices/all-rs97-firmwares-here-(internal-external)-all-systems-supported/

Do you mean the external SD card isn?t mounted? It has to be formatted as fat32 or else it won?t get seen by the system. Larger SD cards often come formatted as exfat, so that might be the problem.

you should be able to add your games to your Sd card with a sd card adapter to your computer. If the computer dont see it. Install Mini tool partition wizard. With this program check the sd card drive. Maybe your sd card with the rs 97 partition dont have a LETTER in windows. This problem happen to me a few times. Add a letter to the sd card with Mini tool.
after that the computer will detect it, and you can add your games. AND use mini tool to EXPAND your partition. expand will give you a larger rs 97 partition to put your games.

I'm having problems with the installation of the firmware, after I burn the image with the Windows disk imager, I can't acces the folder, I get this error message: "the volume contains an unrecognized file system".

The image burning is correct because when I start the RS97 everything is correctly installated, but I can't fix the flickering errors and can't put roms on it, because with the usb cable I can't acces too, I get the message unsupported usb mount or something similar.

My model is the 2.1 16GB.

Thanks community!

The USB mount error is a known issue. NERDS kernel fixed this particular issue. (Manufacturer intentionally broke USB so people could not remove the roms. Stupid reason but heh)
As for the flickering errors, it is also a known issue and unfortunately that was not totally fixed either, even with version 1.5 released by Jutley/Tony.
It will only be fixed (along with the performance issues) once for all after Tony is done with IPU support for old and new units. He only added IPU for new units so far so i can't even try it. (But pingflood told me the results are pretty and it fixed all the issues, performance, flickering etc... in one go)

That was the reason why i gave up on it (hence the warning first post) but it will get fixed soon. But right now, you are probably better off not using it and wait for him.

Hey gamablabla. Thanks for all your hard work. I know youve stopped working on this unit, but i wanted to know, is ONS functional?

Ive been trying to get it working for a few days and no matter what i do, the emulator hangs on the loading screen for a few seconds and then kicks me back out to the emu selection menu.

The ReGBA Emulator dosn't work on my 3.0 device.
Is that a common issue? =(

It is unfortunately and there's still no fix on it yet. Pingflood, Tony, and I still could not find a fix for it.
It crashes at the dynamic recompiler but the reason why said JIT works on JZ4760 and JZ4770 and most but not all JZ4760B don't is unknown.
I have tried porting other GBA emulators like VBA-M and mGBA but they run too slowly on the RS-97 unfortunately.
Our last hope is giving the C interpreter a try on reGBA but even then i doubt it will run as fast as a JIT but still crossing our fingers :c

i cant get picodrive working in double buffering with my v2.1 (16bg + NEW SCREEN) neither fceux with double buffering enable in fceux.cfg
Maybe it works in double buffering BUT the screen is all flcikering with low brightness. Can you help me please.
thanks a lot ( i patched 141firmware with your patch, and i even tried to patch the universal patcher firmware with it)
i just tried with firmware 1.6 useless firmware, dont work too in double buffering.


Note: this is my unit: Revision 2.1 (New units) JZ4760B (Fixed usb)

EDIT: Jutley tried to help me and sent me a picodrive and gpsp build with double buffering, but it still dont work:
i email him this:

" its bad. it doesnt work again. Picodrive and gpsp have flickering problem.
maybe double buffering is working, but its unplayable with the flickering problem.
i can show you a video if needed.
I hope you can still help me.
All emulator dont have a option for vsync so double buffering is necessary, because so much tearing or stuttering

Thanks a lot , i appreciated A LOT your help !

Note: this is my unit: Revision 2.1 (New units) JZ4760B (Fixed usb)

( note: if possible after the picodrive and gpsp problem is corrected, i would love to have fceux and Oh boy in double buffering too ;) "


THANKS FOR HELP


Please Nobody is able to help me with double buffering?
( Jutley or tonyjih or Gameblabla maybe?) thanks for help.

( im sad. Do you have any idea or special build to get picodrive and/or others emulators in Double Buffering, with my RS-97
v2.1.  All emulators have a lot of tearing and stuttering, so i hope double buffering will correct it. I dont have this problem with my gcw zero. But i prefer the rs-97. Thanks)

Hi,

Thank you for reply. I have tried UselessRS97 on this device and stock image works better on it.
This device looks like complete scam to me. No emulator works properly. I also have RetroMini and it
is similar but at least GBA works pretty much OK on it.

Update:
After playing around little bit more I managed to make UselessRS97 working much nicer on my device.
It is not great but much better than stock firmware.
